I had some friends over this evening for dinner and games. We played Ticket to Ride and it made me think of a blog post about a time we played the same game a few years ago. I looked it up to show everyone. After they left, I realized it was still pulled up, so I've spent the last hour or so reading through old blog posts starting in 2008. Here is my favorite quote (can you have a favorite quote of yourself?) "Why use 7 words when you can use 37?" It made me laugh for two reasons 1)It is so true of me...I like to use a lot of words to explain something! 2)I just had a conversation with Danell the other day where she told me she liked my stories. It's been a while since someone has told me they like that I talk too much and include incredibly too many details in my stories! But the best post I found was on April 30, 2008. If you want to read the whole thing click here. Here is the gist of the blog. It was my first public debate of whether I should join Facebook. What cracked me up the most was the comments that followed, and Danell's comment in particular: "Don't get your hopes up people!!!! Teresa is physically unable to join anything or acquire a new piece of technology until every person she knows on the face of the earth has had it for at least two years. I have cell phone voicemails and text messages as proof guys, you may be thinking "but I've had those things since at least '02, but Teresa didn't get them until '05... its not going to happen." She predicted correctly, since I didn't join Facebook until January 1, 2010!
Lastly a conversation I had with Danell on Wednesday (apparently this blog could have been subtitled "The one that mentions Danell a lot.") Danell has been having a lot of allergy issues and I got a really sad text from her Wednesday about it, so I called her on my way home from church to commiserate. Here is part of the conversation:
Danell: You should go in and have a glass of chocolate milk for me.
Me: My stomach has been hurting tonight and the thought of food is making me sick. Maybe I could NOT eat in support of all the foods you can't eat.
Me: And then tomorrow morning, I'll have a glass of chocolate milk just for you!
Danell: I like how you can not eat or eat but still support me either way!
Me: It is convenient that way!
